Hello, hello!
I’m so excited for today’s review! couldn’t wait, I wrote it as soon as I finished the book 🙂

Children of Vice is the first in the series spin-off from the Ruthless People series, and Holy moly!! this series is a whole new level, it deserves WHOLE 5 STARS!!

I’ve fallen in love with JJ McAvoy‘s style of writing and her books, they made me feel hundred of things all at emotions were all over the place; It IS that good, yes!

This book is told from multiple POVs; It is about Ethan Callahan (Liam and Melody’s first-born) who’s now a Ceann na Conairte.

“If it means protecting this family’s name and legacy, I’d set myself on fire.” I felt my whole body tensing as I spoke. “I will not be the son who inherited the kingdom only to let it crumble at my feet. That is not my fate.”

Ethan is so cold. I disliked that in the beginning but understood why, the more I kept on reading i ended up sorta loving it. He is a calculated, Methodical, sharp-eyed, intense and  absolutely ruthless.

Ivy O’Davoren has been set up and served SEVEN years in prison for a crime she did not commit. She blamed the Callahan’s for her parents’ death until she learned the truth..knowing she was blaming the wrong people all along. She’s ruthless but with a softer side. She has a quirky side and she’s perfect for Ethan! They complimented each other. And of course Liam and Melody are still the most ruthless of them all… There is no denying (There’s going to be a little surprise from them, keep your eyes open 😉 )

Donatella/Dona, Another character I come to love. She’s so much like her mother Melody, fearless and power-hungry. I am VERY ready for her book!! All i can say for now is WELL PLAYED..WELL EFFING PLAYED



There is a huge turning point half through in the story, which really changes Ethan & Ivy’s relationship to the better (some facts revealed, and flashbacks from the Ruthless People are clicking together).

I surely ddon’t agree with everything in this story but I must say, it was one hell of an entertainment and I loved every second of it. Worth it!!


The cliffhanger at the end is driving me nuts, I SO need to read the next book, it’s going to be LIT!!

Have you read the “Ruthless People” series? (you don’t have to read them in order to read this current one I just reviewed) What are your thoughts?

If you love mafia romances, with a fearless heroine, then this book is what you’ve been searching for.

Happy reading!
